COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voilá! A beer from chilly Quebec inspired by the "rauchbier" you find in Bamberg, Germany — a dark beer made partly from smoked malt, aged slowly at low temperatures, and put in the bottle unfiltered, with a fine yeast sediment. All for one!

trapped (715) - New York City, TURKEY - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle at barVolo, Toronto, on 8 July 2011. Dark brown color, tan-amber big spongy head, caramel-coca aroma with a whiff of berries, very little smoky flavor, more like a stout than Marzen! Mild carbonation and abrupt finish.

slimspady (175) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
Smoke, roasted malts. Some fruit. Unimpressed off the start, but got significantly better as it warmed. My first rauchbier, not too bad.

jonas (5593) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle. Pours cloudy brown with a golden head. Light smoky and honeyish nose. Slightly fizzy mouthfeel, which makes the body feel a tad too light. Roast and smoke flavours on a nutty base. Burned sugar on the tongue afterwards.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2009
Bottle. Body-nearly opaque with a dense eighth inch head. Nose-stinks, rotten melons, smoked malts. Taste-some smoke, tastes like you took cantaloupe aqua fresca, strained it into a glass rubbed your finger in a toilet and an industrial bakery, dipped your finger into the strained juice, fermented the juice in the back of an old beat up Chevy parked in the blazing sun of the Sonora desert for a year, poured the result into an ashtray, gave it a good shake, then bottled it. Yup. That’s what it tastes like.

notalush (4766) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 750, slightly different label - I love me some smoked beer, so when I saw "bamburg style smoked beer" on the label, I got really excited - pours a deep, dark brown, with a well-retained lace - so far so good - nice beechwood smoke in the aroma, with some toasted malt, caramel, chocolate, some vegetal qualities - okay, not as good as I wanted the nose to be, but there is still hope - full carbonation in the mouth - flavor of burnt malts, sour cherries, leafy/tobacco character, crappy chocolate, smoke, ashy flavor, day-old coffee - ah-ha, here is where it is ruined.

pushkinwow (1956) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
750ml bottle. Murky brown with tan head, smoke, syrup, malt, some molasses, metallic, bit of caramel. High carbonation, metal again, mildly sweet, some vegetable, bit of smoke throughout but light finish. Tried to let it breath but the metal just wouldn’t disappear...

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2009
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, dark chocolate, husks), with light notes of smoke and charred wood. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, velvety/syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Rather dull, with some rough edges (poor malt character, unpleasant twang and aftertaste).
